I was riding the other day and I heard a slight grinding noise from the clutch side of the bike. I got off the bike and the noise was coming from the kickstarter shaft area. I barely moved the kickstarter back and the noise amplified tremendously. I tore the cover off at the shop and inspected the kickstarter spring. It looked fine and the spring was in the proper hole. Any ideas on this. When I put it back together, it still did made the noise.
